Senior Associate/Partner - Contentious Probate


We have an exciting opportunity for an ambitious Senior Associate/Partner to join our nationally recognised Contentious Probate team.

The Team

Our experienced team has an excellent reputation for advising on complex issues connected with Wills, trusts and estates for charities, high-net-worth individuals and financial referrers. Whilst the core team is based in the South West, it attracts clients from across the country and abroad. Notably, the team is the preferred legal provider for a number of national charities across the UK for all legacy matters and disputes.

In the latest Legal 500 rankings, Michelmores' Private Wealth expertise was recognised in London and the team was ranked Tier 1 in the South West. The Legal 500's commentary on the team stated:

'The profile of this team is on the rise: it is involved in some of the largest, most complex proceedings. Its USP is that it combines the experience of the big London firms but with the fresh perspective of a firm outside London.'

The Candidate

The position offers a real opportunity to progress your career. The work is demanding, but the team and firm promote an open and friendly culture whilst being proud and protective of their reputation.

You will have developed a breadth of significant experience in contentious probate and experience in contentious trusts would be advantageous

You will be self-motivated with a pro-active and professional approach to your work, able to manage a complex and varied workload effectively.  You must be a strong team player with experience in supervising, motivating and developing junior members of a team.  

You will have a genuine interest in promoting business development opportunities and/or activities and be able to demonstrate an ability to build effective and positive relationships with both clients and colleagues that embrace the importance of trust and collaboration.

This is a great opportunity to join a progressive and forward thinking Firm where clients recommend us because of the quality of our people and the depth of experience across the whole team. This position offers the opportunity for cross-office working in an agile environment.

As a firm we are committed to supporting our people across all levels to achieve the balance they need.  We are open to talk flexible working and to empower any candidate to put forward a flexible working pattern to meet their needs.
